"Filled with delicious, inventive recipes, The Kitchen Diva's Diabetic Cookbook offers much more than a great resource for families who struggle with challenges of meal planning for diabetics. As in all of Medearis's cookbooks, the recipes are family friendly, well written, and easy for even beginning cooks to follow.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
When many of her family members and friends developed diabetes, author and cooking show host Medearis (The New African-American Kitchen) set to work. Her latest collection features recipes that are low in sugar, sodium, and carbs without sacrificing flavor. Dishes for every meal of the day are inspired from cuisines around the globe: with recipes ranging from Apple-Stuffed Waffle Sandwiches to Curried Chicken to Black-Eyed Pea Cakes, cooks are bound to be inspired in turn. Less familiar foods such as kohlrabi and sunchokes seem less intimidating with Medearis's enthusiastic encouragement. Because juvenile diabetes is on the rise, recipes aimed at kids have also been included. While the dishes are easy to make, cooking times range from a few minutes to several hours for well-marinated or slow-cooked meals. Recipes include cooking tips, ingredient benefits, ideas for leftovers, general nutrition information, and exchange list values. VERDICT Although the main dishes are meat-centric, the book has enough variety to have wide appeal for anyone trying to cook a diabetic-friendly meal.—Jude Baldwin, Shasta Coll., Redding, CA
